Summary: Bought this camera for a Vegas bachelor party. The camera worked just fine and took pretty good pictures (see attached). The straight to facebook via wifi feature is pretty awesome, but not the best idea for a drunk guy in Vegas if you know what I mean. The interface is very easy to work with, the video is smooth, and the downloading to computer is easy as cake.
Summary: I must admit, I both love and am a bit annoyed by this camera. The main reason I bought it was because it can link to your smart phone so you can remotely take pictures with your phone. This does work, but it takes forever to link up... and the camera keeps wanting to go into sleep mode... so the remote function is not as cool as it could be. The software built into the camera did not work with my Windows 7 64 bit. The pictures are ok...
Summary: I have mixed feelings about this camera..... It's great; looks great, photos are nice, options are the right balance of basic/complex for different levels of photography. Easy to carry. Downside; glitches and errors. I had this camera less than a month before some sort of lens issue cropped up. Although Samung repaired it (Claiming I had somehow damaged it yet it was covered under warranty, so I didn't pay for the repair) it hasn't been the same since I got it back.
Summary: I purchased this camera specifically for the option that it connects to cloud storage services or links to your iPhone. Samsung could improve this feature and add the number of cloud services. My wife was disappointed she couldn't upload directly to Shutterfly. Camera does take great pictures.
I have to use the telephoto to get the shots I'm used too

Summary: It is a great little camera and cheap, but my first experience with it was to take a picture of me and my new girlfriend at dinner and the field of view at 5 foot was more background than us. That is my big negative and one that I think people should know about. Outside of that it is a great camera. The menus are well thought out and easy to use without reading the manual. It uses a standard micro usb cable (a big plus) to charge.
Summary: I have a Canon S100 and older Pentax DSLR for myself. I wanted to purchase a camera for my mother, who has minimal experience with newer tech. I was hoping to get a point and shoot which took better pictures than the throw away cameras she bought at the store. I wanted one cable to both charge the camera and transfer pictures and video. No changing batteries or taking out SD cards to complicate the learning process.
